Week listings and previews for our Korean Players Abroad. On the side note, our U-17 Taeguk Warriors are having a great start to the 2015 U-17 World Cup in Chile. We won 1-0 against Brazil and 1-0 against Guinea. With two wins, we were the first country in our group to qualify for the round of 16. Europa League was on this week, both Augsburg 1-0 and Borussia Dortmund 3-1 won. Congratulations to Augsburg for winning their first Europa League match this season.

Kim Jin-Su has been struggling to start these days. I expect he will be benched this week against Hamburg.
Ryu Seung-Woo sustained an injury during international break, I don’t expect he will make squad list.
Even though Lee Chung-Yong has joined full team training, I think it’s too early for Lee Chung-Yong to make the squad list.
Yun Suk-Young has been playing in the U21 team. Looks like he will be fit enough to start league game soon.
Swansea City has been struggling a lot these days, with six games without a win. This match against Aston Villa will be vital for Gary Monk to retain his manager position and will be a confidence booster for Swansea City. I expect Ki Sung-Yueng to start.
Son Heung-Min sustained an injury before international break, he will be out for couple of weeks.
Hong Jeong-Ho is currently injured, I don’t expect he will feature this week against Borussia Dortmund.
Ji Dong-Won will face his former club Borussia Dortmund this week, I expect a bench appearance for him this week.
Koo Ja-Cheol started in the Europa League mid-week, but was rested last week against Darmstadt. I expect he will start against Borussia Dortmund.
Park Joo-Ho had an average league performance and Europa League performance this week. Marcel Schmelzer is back from his injury, I expect him to be benched this week against Augsburg.
Suk Hyun-Jun is in great form, he should start against Moreirense F.C.
Can you guys drop Ryu Seung woo from your list? He’s on Leverkusen’s payroll but not part of the club in any way other than that.
Here’s the thing, a player can be out of first team action for a spell but can potentially be called back in for various reasons when you least expect it. Ryu certainly is not a vital part of the club at the moment, but he’s young and should his time come, he could make waves. He stays in this lineup until something significant, a loan spell away, etc occurs.
